Customizable Preschool Planning Pages

I know that I’ve shared my Preschool Planning Pages with you before, but I am SO excited with something new that I can offer with THIS download.

You can customize and save the pdf planning pages on your own computer!!

What does that mean? This pdf form can be typed in, printed, saved and changed from week to week, meaning you can copy/paste from week to week and save your lesson plans as you go along!!

Preschool Corner ~ Planning Forms

This last week and a half has been spent planning, organizing, re-organizing and pulling together ideas for what our upcoming year is going to look like. Overall, it’s finally beginning to ‘click’ and I’m getting an idea of what the year will look like for Kaleb ~ and that’s exciting for me.

In all honesty, I feel that he gets the leftovers when it comes to learning time, especially as I’m trying to fit in all that the older three need to do. I really wanted to have something in place for him that he would be excited about, I would be excited about…and that would be fun! Cindy from Along the Way has been busy working with me to come up with some literature based units that we can do with our boys and it has been FUN!!! We’re working on some fun printables and lapbook-style units that we’re so excited about!

This week we brought home some monarch caterpillars and have a new space {thanks to my re-organizing} to watch and observe the caterpillars up close. Wednesday morning the kids woke up and were able to watch Kaleb’s caterpillar go into its chrysalis ~ SO much fun!! We were able to video tape it too and Kaleb was so excited about the ‘dancing’ that it was doing. :)

I’ve posted about the planning pages that we used last year, but this year I’ve revamped them a little bit and focused it more toward literature-based studies. If you would like to download the 2 page Preschool Planning form, just click on the thumbnail images below.

We try to get all of our ‘school time’ done Monday through Thursday. The first page has room for planning daily activities in the following areas: reading {related to something in the actual book}, doing {something that we can do that relates to the topic: lapbook, gross motor, math, etc…}, song/game, Bible {verse/song}, and crafts. The second page gives me room to expand my ideas and jot down notes for the following areas: Bible/Character, Language, Science/Nature, Math, Gross/Fine Motor, Arts & Crafts, Songs & Games.

At the bottom of the page, I also have room to plan what the basic layout of Kaleb’s workboxes will be for the week. I have 9 planning spaces {the workbox unit that we’re using has 9 boxes overall} ~ but we’ll be using only 6 of the boxes, with 3 as more some fun ‘extras’ for our day. I’ll be sharing more soon with pictures of our school area layout for this year, so stay tuned for that!

Are YOU getting excited for the upcoming year??? Link up what you’ve been doing and what you are planning on doing. :) Can’t wait to see what you ladies are up to with your kids this year!

Preschool Corner: Preschool Planning Form

Want to know how much we actually did this week?

{silence}

I played hookey. Serious hookey. As in ‘leaving the state and escaping spending time with my husband and meeting a GREAT blogging friend in real life‘ hookey.

Meaning nothing got accomplished in the way of schoolwork {unless you count Mommy getting re-energized a part of schoolwork}. Which really ~ that is VERY important, no? {grins}

And I can’t wait to share more on my meeting with Carisa from 1+1+1=1 and Jill from Forever ‘n Ever ‘n Always. Such absolute fun. Really and truly!!! But she holds all the picture proof…so I’m at her mercy!

BUT…I do have something to share with you all! I realized the other day that I never shared my preschool planning pages with you all, so it’s another printable this week for you all {and yes…they do look a lot like my Tot School planning forms ~ just a little different}.

I’m also working like crazy behind the scenes to get the preschool part of my website up and running so you all can access my printables in one easy place…little by little it’s getting there. But enough about our crazy week, tell me all about the fun that’s going on at your place!!!
